This exciting exhibition will run from October 25, 2013 through September 7, 2014. The Columbian Exposition was a wildly popular world’s fair that marked Chicago’s entrance on the global stage. It also marked the beginning of The Field Museum. Over 50,000 objects from the fair became part of the Museum’s founding collections. Now, visitors can travel back to 1893 and experience the excitement all over again.
